OTION (Guillermo Blinker) is an MC, singer/songwriter, poet and dancer based in Amsterdam. Inspired by hip hop culture, neo soul music and his Afro-Surinamese roots, he finds himself standing in the middle of the ancestral and the futuristic as he aims to create magic in the moment: " I aint done yet, I'm on a mission that my ancestors funded. I channel from the future so this is my comeback."
Giovanni Maisto Ferreira
Conceptual artist Giovanni Maisto Ferreira was raised in four countries, surrounded by different cultures, constantly adapting to new worlds. This made him a strong observer of our society and the human condition, which inspires him to ask challenging questions. His concepts are mainly translated to 3D objects, spatial design and performance. His mission is to create work that triggers the intuitive, the sensitive and the human desire to connect on a interpersonal and spiritual level.
